that's totally right, kimberly. in november we voted for obama's super size government. so what is the fiscal cliff? the fiscal cliff is the check. it's the tab after the buffet of all that spending. so the irony is everyone in the beltway thinks it's so terrible we are going over the fiscal cliff because it's so irresponsible. well, ironically it's the opposite. the whole point of the fiscal cliff is when the fiscal cliff is cleared and we jump over it, we are getting rid of all the accounting game mix, the temporary stings of things that allow congress to pretend it's being fiscally responsible when it's not. what's going to happen? a lot of taxes will go up but taxes will go up on everybody, not injure the guy around the tree that's paying for everything but everyone will have to pay. and then folks will realize the government we are voting for costs us money too. >> that's the thing. if we don't go over the cliff and they don't reach a compromise, what will happen? they can't afford to keep spending like this. won't spending have to go down by virtue after compromise not bei

cars, right? and we took old cars and smashed them. we -- and then barack obama also ignored, we also know that one of the common complaints was that george bush consistently put the motives of industry above the motives of the epa because he was big oil and big business, and, you know the rig rah ma role. barack obama did the exact same thing. the epa said we need to decrease smog levels because smog is killing people, and barack obama said, no, because it's not good for business. so he did exactly what he accused george bush of doing all throughout his campaign. on the issue of nuclear waste, i'm going to probably try to get through these next couple of slides here quickly because we've got some really juicy stories from the west coast that i have to get for you. barack obama is not relistically dealing with nuclear power. this has been a political football for years ever since the reagan administration. he didn't want the nuclear waste plant built out in the east, tom foley didn't want it built in the west, some texas congressman didn't want it in his state, so that's how nevada go

a transparent end -- and credible political agreement ending 23 serious human rights abuses. president obama believes that from this crisis should a merger political agreement that addresses the underlying regional security and economic and government issues while upholding the territorial integrity. the ferc must take concrete steps toward reform -- the drc must take steps toward reform to reach lasting peace in the drc. looking forward, we are using all the tools at our disposal to help address and end this crisis. we are monitoring humanitarian needs and working to mobilize resources to ensure continued emergency assistance to civilians in need. we are calling upon everyone involved in the conflict to maintain the current cease- fire, to permit humanitarian access and to pursue a sustainable political resolution through honest and meaningful dialogue. while the talks between the and 23 and the -- the m23 anti- drc must continue -- and the drc must continue, resolving the conflict is paramount in the region. some of the root causes can only be dealt with in a one-on-one dialogue. these inc

to be worried about the way the public has seen all this. i think they have enormous incentive to deal right now because the poll numbers show that obama's numbers are gaining. democratic numbers are gaining. they're up in the 50s. republicans are down in the 20s and 30s. i think republicans lost the economic debate for now with democrats. i think there is lot of pressure on them to get this deal done soon and then, you know, we will start all over again because there will be a presidential budget in february and we'll be back at the table, negotiating this with the republicans right away. so it is just, should be seen as a little fiscal break or a fiscal, we'll come up with a better analogy but temporary stopgap measure what will then be, we're going to be starting this debate all over again in february. heather: mark, in terms of, you know, who the blame is placed upon and in terms of the public, poll after poll does show that they will blame republicans. is that a matter of messaging from republicans and what can they do, if anything, to change that? what have they done wrong? >> number one o
of it, having president obama back in washington today, and having congress still out, is not the right message to end. people right now feel that the republicans are the party of no, that they are the ones causing this, they are going to get blamed. the fact of the matter is, is that they are doing the fiscal responsible thing here and that's where they can hang their hat. is that they have to hold on for deficit spending, and they still have the debt ceiling to hold in their back pocket if they need to. >> so what would, if you had been advising boehner, what would you advise him to say yes to? >> well, you know, he has to push the president to get more spending cuts. >> well, he tried that. he tried that. the president's in the cat bird seat, though. the president can say no and the republicans still get blamed. >> and then he came up with this plan "b" is really where things went off the rail. because it just looked like a mess publicly. >> all right. keith, what -- i mean, i know that it's not your party, but what would you advise the republicans to do, if anything in the next two
republicans have tilted right and if romney beats obama, it will be because he's one independent voters who move from party to party, election to election. to me the best evidence the tea party movement is not here to stay, that at least entered the bloodstream is that the voting behavior of congressman. for example, the ryan budget, those in 2011 and 2012 when i came up for a vote, republicans who previously voted now go for it. the reason is that they failed to fail to vote for accountability primary by someone who will get to the right. one of the people i write about is a moderate republican in missouri and she voted against a couple of things, her voting behavior is not sufficiently raping i read eric's and who wrote something sane hate tea party, here's a bunch of primary. that behavior strikes into the heart of legislators. >> if governor romney loses, the response will be we told you so. >> ask him exactly. and that the moderates are ready. >> what do you see coming down the line considering the judicial appointment crisis? >> i assumed the idea that there's a lot of unfilled vacanc
. gregg: right. >> and then on that day for seven hours we couldn't even scrap bell one jet to show support? there had to be a much better way. gregg: "the american spectator" wrote, obama's fingerprints is all over this refusal. no one in the cia command --, failure has to be obama's. no one else could have denied the real-time request. look the incompetence legally identified in this report explain why there was alleged cover-up of the truth by the administration? >> because there is no doubt about it. for the next few days and even weeks, they were still spinning this report of an obscure video and spontaneous protests and what we have seen from all of the footages there was no protest at all. and that there was no mention of any video by these terrorists. so shame on everyone involved in this. four americans are dead. we need to prevent this in the future. in order to do that, we need to find out what went wrong. gregg: maybe congress can get to the bottom of it. i will ian that ros-lehtinen, thanks so much for being with us. >> thank you. gregg: merry christmas, you too. heathe
. >> reporter: you know, gregg, this is all in retaliation for a bill that president obama signed earlier this month labeling the russians as human rights violaters and calling for sanctions on the russians. now, this adoption clause is a very small part of a larger bill that was approved, as you said, unanimously by the russian parliament. the bill now goes to president putin to sign. if he signs it -- and he is expected to sign it -- no more russian children will be adopted by americans, including 46 children whose adoptions are already in progress. the national council for adoption calls this a tragedy for russian kids. listen. >> over 700,000 registered orphans in russia right now. um, there were over a thousand adoptions to the united states many 2011 alone. this means potentially the loss at a hope and a future through a loving, permanent family for countless orphans in russia. >> reporter: yeah. and just to add to that, consider that since 1981 nearly 60,000 russian children have been adopted in the u.s., but the russians point to 19 russian kids who have died after being adopted s

are moving in that direction, particularly in the entitlement state. >> right. >> not reforming it, but actually expanding it. >> what happened was the supreme court helping this along. t you had the justices essentially rewrite legislation. changing the tax congress passed to declare obama care constitutional which is a littleec scary that the highest justice is -- justices in the land would take the activist roll. that's what is scary. the backdrop of the presidential year was europe. we know where this path leads. all this turmoil, the huge welfare and the low productivity and high unemployment that comes along with them, that was the backdrop of the presidential campaign. voters voted, and they said, yes, we are going to keep moving in that direction, kim. where do you think the electorat is here? is it be ibd hue the choices that -- is it behind the choices that jason suggested they might be? >> barack obamaus won this election by very effectively making this a referendum about his opponent, mitt romney. if you went out and asked most americans, do you think barack obama did a

madison. the superiority of a right to declare laws unconstitutional has been unchallenged since that point out think you that decisions can change that. the mac do you think if obama is reelected that ruth bader ginsburg will set down? are there any other justices you think might consider withdrawing from the supreme court? >> the answer is the resignation decisions are very political in the sense that justices decide to leave when a president to the lake in in a position to appoint them. this ginsburg is a great fan of president obama and i do think she will be publicly and obama's third year. she's 79 years old. she's often fishiness is served until 82 because that's the way brandeis, or i ago served until. that's not funny. that's true. and some people ask, why did she quit earlier to make sure obama has a seat? you know what, she's a human being and she's a widow and she loves what she does and she's good at it and she's got to bring some hope to do it. she's particularly enamored of her new colleague, elana kagan and her choices to be senior liberal the supreme court is is
